Waltzingmouse Stamps May Release Previews Day 1
Sunday, May 26, 2013
Welcome to day 1 of the Waltzingmouse Stamps May release previews. Today the DT are previewing the fabulous new Country Labels 4. These labels co-ordinate with Spellbinders Labels 4, one of my favorite sets! I just love the country feel to this set, so I went with a primitive, rustic style for my cards.
I'm still loving the chalkboard style so I made that the focal point of my card. This new set has five motif stamps, I used the little house on my label. The background plaid I stamped using Pic-Nic Patterns and Off Beat Backgrounds, the little stars are a sneak peek from tomorrow's set.
I also made a fun bookmark in the same style, again using Spellbinders Labels 4 and one of the labels from Country Labels 4. There are six great labels in this set and seven sentiments.
The bookmark could also be used as a tag. All the cardstock used is from Core'dinations and the edges are inked using Distress Inks - Antique Linen and Scattered Straw.
For my second card I used one of the patchwork labels, these are so cute! I really wanted a mix of colors so I used Distress Markers to color each section, this is an easy way to color sections of a stamp, I used Barn Door and Vintage Photo.
I kept this one fairly simple, again sticking with the rustic country charm! I had to add a bit of gingham and some eyelet lace! The woodgrain cardstock is pre-embossed from Core'dinations.
I hope you're loving Country Labels 4 as much as I am, just wait 'til you see tomorrow's set! It's very patriotic! Visit Claire's blog for more details. Here are the DT members sharing creations today!
